Effect of rowcovers and insecticide sprays on insect damage to strawberries

Effect of rowcovers and insecticide sprays on insect damage to strawberries

Acta Horticulturae ( 348): 500-503

In field trials in Monmouth, Maine, non-woven row covers were applied over strawberries with and without malathion to determine their effect on injury caused by Lygus lineolaris and Anthonomus signatus during 1989-91. Injury caused by L. lineolaris was reduced by the use of row covers in 1990, regardless of insecticide application. In 1991, the covers reduced mirid injury only when malathion was applied in the autumn.
